Hood had in a recent interview with the Iraqi TV claimed that the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) is annually spending a huge amount of money to support the Iraqi popular forces, including al-Nujaba.
Al-Nujaba in a statement rejected the allegations, saying that Hood is “actually after provoking the public opinion and questioning al-Nujaba’s nationalism”.
The statement underscored that relations between al-Nujaba and the IRGC are not linked to financial issues.
The Al-Nujaba movement along with other Iraqi popular forces have effectively helped the government to fight against the terrorist groups in the country.
They have also played a role in eradicating the terrorist cells stationed at the common borders between Iraq and Syria in cooperation with the Syrian army.
